Is Twitter Planning To Launch Encrypted DMs?

There is every likelihood of your Direct Messages on Twitter being hacked or that they could be forcefully accessed by the government officials for inquiries. Therefore, in order to keep your private conversation secret, TechCrunch has reported that Twitter may soon intend to introduce encrypted DMs. Sounds interesting, isn’t it?
